TapGoods is a marketplace where people can rent goods to and from
How does TapGoods work?
TapGoods is like having access to several hundred of your closest
friends’ garages. You can rent goods as you need them or make money
by renting items out that you’re not using. It’s as simple as that.
What kind of stuff can I find or list on TapGoods?
From a guitar to a pressure washer to a bouncy house for your
3-year-old’s birthday, TapGoods is your go-to place for renting tools,
home and garden equipment, sports gear, party supplies, and stuff
related to hobbies. But although we have more types of stuff than
your pack-rat aunt, we don’t currently rent motor vehicles,
watercraft, clothing, or jewelry.
How does the stuff get from Point A to Point B?
Get ready to feel empowered – it’s up to you. Choose from
one of four ways:
- 1) the owner drops the item off,
- 2) the renter picks it up,
- 3) both agree on a safe place to meet, or
- 4) the renter pays a small fee for professional delivery via
TapGoods Door-to-Door Just tell us what you
prefer when you register and then you can work out the details
during the rental process.
I’m not sure about someone coming to my house
or going to someone else’s house.
No worries. You can either meet up somewhere (a coffee shop,
police or fire station, library, etc.) or
TapGoods’ professional delivery service.
What is the cancellation policy?
The renter has the ability to cancel
item(s) that they have rented up to 24 hours before the rental date.
The renter is charged 24 hours prior to rental date.
Can a renter negotiate a rental fee with the owner
for a specific item?
Yes, a renter is able to negotiate fees and terms with the owner
once an inquiry has been sent about an item.
Who sets the rental price?
You do. You can pick a daily, weekly, and/or monthly rate – whatever
works for you. We offer a guideline (5% of your purchase price for
a daily rate, 15% for weekly, and 30% for monthly), but it’s
really up to you.
What does TapGoods charge?
You don’t have to pay anything to join or to list items. We do
have some bills to pay though, so you keep 80% of the rental fee,
and we keep 20%. There is a minimum TapGoods fee of $2 per rental.
We get paid only when you get paid. Pretty sweet deal, eh?!
I’m really attached to my stuff. What if someone damages or steals it?
If so, we’ve got your back. With the TapGoods Guarantee, we will
make sure that if anything you list on TapGoods is damaged or stolen
while it's rented out, you’ll be fully covered, up to $10,000.
See details here. If you have an issue,
your first step will be to try to work out a solution with the renter.
And, we’re here to help.
How do I put my stuff up for rent?
Trust us, it is easy as pie. Snap a few photos of the items you
would like to put on the site to rent. Upload them, describe each
item, and set the rental price. And that’s all folks! You are done!
How do I get paid?
Our payment processing company, a division of PayPal, puts money
into your bank account. They take payment from the renter before the
rental and then distribute the funds when the rental is complete.
You don’t have to worry about a thing except for having some
extra spending cash.
When is an owner paid for a rental
TapGoods immediately pays out the owner once the owner has closed
out the transaction on the website and the condition of the item has
been verified. The payment is deposited directly in the owner’s bank
account and could take a standard 3-5 days to post due to bank
